About Nicholas

I created this blog to really help Adelaide brides who are planning their wedding. I've been been a professional photographer for 15 years. My work has appeared in the New York Times, Style Me Pretty and brides.com. In 2015 Style Me Pretty interviewed me,  in 2016 Complete Wedding Magazine called me "One of the World's Best Wedding Photographers".

For this profile I spoke to Beth and Kaye, founders of Twig Studio, a wedding and event florist based in Beaumont, Adelaide.

NP: Tell us about yourself and your company. How many years have you been a florist?

We’ve been florists since 2006, Twig began in 2009. Twig’s studio is actually a shed and sometimes a garage depending on the weather (the garage is cooler). We love the flexibility of working from home, both of us care for large gardens which supplement our work. Growing that something a little different gives our arrangements individuality and an extra freshness.

With close proximity to the hills where we love to walk, we’re also well placed to forage for interesting textures and grasses. Our relaxed style reflects all of those things we love.

What’s the first thing brides usually ask when they come and see you? 

They generally don’t ask a lot of questions, we, however, ask a lot. Few couples have a very fixed idea of what they would like, most are more open minded, looking for inspiration and suggestions.

What do couples need to know about ordering flowers for their wedding?

It’s best to keep their parameters loose rather than choosing specific flowers and trust your florist to select the best quality seasonal flowers available. Above all, find a florist they connect with and with whom they share a similar asthetic.

Do couples need to book you early in their planning?

Yes please, we take bookings 12 months in advance.

Can you share with us what a typical wedding looks like for you?

Pre-planning, ordering, visiting flower markets and local growers, flower and foliage picking, lots of buckets and early starts. On the day we begin with finishing off any hand wired pieces, boxing, ribboning, deliveries and then setting up. 

Transporting things without damage is very important, it’s also essential to keep flowers cool and happy at all times!

How do you like to work with clients?

As closely as possible, face to face is best. We like to gather as much information as we can;
styling, colours, venue etc and then prepare designs and a detailed quotation. Upon commission we also like to schedule another appointment closer to the wedding date. Our first meeting is often many months prior so it’s great to meet again and confirm any details that may have changed.

Could you give our readers some indication of costs involved in ordering wedding flowers from
you?


A wedding can be a simple as a few bouquets or as lavish as you like. Item prices do vary dependant on size, style and flower types.

Do you offer any other services helpful for brides?

We’re happy to help with any form of botanical styling.
